3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Italian tasting @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a muddy pale yellow with a small creamy white head. Aroma has peach, apricot and ginger. Lively carbonation. Flavour is a bit sour-sweet with apricots, peach, ginger and other exotic fruits. The wheat makes it feel much like a Wit, just a bit less creamy. But it’s fresh and dry and hides its 7 % extremely well. I could see myself drinking this a lot in hot Italy :o)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another underappreciated beer. Had it once before at jjpm74’s gathering in the summertime, it was brought over by a friend of his. I was impressed at the time and I am glad I got a chance to revisit it. It pours the most pale of golden colors, points just for being so pale yet still golden. It’s murky, cannot see through it and yet it’s such a light color, just a "wow" special kind of appearance. Small head only keeps this from a score of 5. Aroma is very peach, not sweet artificial juice but the light sweet skin of the peach. Think tropical fruit without the sweetness. Taste is herbal-sweet-yeast. Mouthfeel is pillow-y on the cheeks, light, and so damn quaffable. Low, low bitterness, and a light milk sweet aftertaste. Nothing mind blowing, so not "Imperial" in any way but just so damn interesting and fun. If it wasn’t for the price I would want to drink this all the time.
750mL @ Spuyten Duyvil, wine house glass.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil, Thanks beastiefan2k: Hazy light golden pour topped by a white film. Nose is full of apricot skins and perfumy suggestions. Has an herbal, not sweet fruitiness. Somewhat elegant. Fluffy light body, with a cleansing mild tartness overall. The peach presence is delicate and not sweet, and is accompanied by a subtle citrus component. Not much depth, but what’s there is pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Spuyten Duyvil, thanks to beastiefan2k. Light golden color. Some fuzzy peachy aroma with maybe a little lemon. Very smooth and soft mouthfeel. Flavor mostly of the peaches, with a dry-apple like sourness. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flavoured with a fair amount of local peaches (from Volpedo), the fruit is quite distinct but not cloying in a beer that is not sweetish but pleasantly dry; some moderate sourness; quite enjoyable tough not "extreme"

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating 3100, bottle and served in my Duval snifter: Despite setting well over a my month this bottle still shows a hazy golden hue with a fading white foamy head that left okay lace upon the glassware.
The aroma has a loving note of ripen peach over a layer of biscuity malt and light yeast funk. Some lemon zest, wildflower and cheese vapours as well. The taste is not as fruity a I would have figured, light tartness upon soft sublime layers of wet hay and fresh dough. The midsection has the yeasty and wheaty depth of palate. The finish is a tad medicinal but also has some complex woody (shall I say tannic) character. The mouth feel is sprite and refreshing, very drinkable for a 7% ABV beer.
I honestly liked this so much more than I thought would be the case and it is newsworthy because I am not a fan of peach beers. (I have no idea what the f**k you people want)

Quite light, milky, very pale yellow. Sort of a peach taffy smell, bit different. Lightly sweet, some subtle tartness, zesty, candy? Interesting mix of flavors.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of dried pineapple, lemon zest, apple skin, and band-aid. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Wild yeast character makes it somewhat fun in the nose, but this is pretty uninteresting overall. Not much peach character, just a vague tart fruitiness.
